"Fat is a descriptor in the same way that black and queer are descriptors. And fat is somewhat similar to black and queer in more than just that way; it's also a word that encompasses a marginalized identity. For me, fat is a way of saying "f*ck you."

Fat stigma is also tied to anti-blackness, in that being black is the abundance that white supremacy seeks to shrink. It's the negative stereotypes created by white supremacy that reinforce the idea that we are naturally fat, and with that many of the negative associations tied to the word today.

The more we call ourselves fat, and the more we realize that it's not bad to be fat, the more we're tearing down walls built by racism."

Who else do we know who is fat and queer?
